Brookings – Expanding Climate Careers While Implementing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)

On Wednesday, January 26, Brookings Metro and the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) will co-host an event to examine how regional and federal stakeholders can leverage the opportunity of the IIJA implementation to address needed talent development in the skilled trades and other climate-related occupations. The event aims to highlight the wide range of careers available and explore how industry leaders need to be involved in ongoing hiring and training efforts. Regional stakeholders, including higher education institutions, workforce development boards, and employers, will all play a critical role in a successful IIJA implementation. Speakers will identify major challenges in implementation, opportunities to test new solutions, and other considerations facing these leaders in the months and years to come.
